- Anyone ridden Salsa Woodchipper bars?
A bit of a revelation for me. I have them on my recently built up Fargo and they rock. The flare makes riding on the drops on descents feel really solid and controlled. I tend to ride the drops most of the time now. I run the 42s as the 46s felt enormous. My 44s on my now deceased crosser feel narrower. I’m contemplating a set for my custom build crosser as I just find them really comfy to ride both on and off road. A great bit of kit.Posted 6 years agoJasonMember
I ran my CX bike with the 46cm ones for a while. In the end I switched back to normal drop bars, can’t really remember why, I think I found the Woodchippers moved my bodyweight to far forward when on the drops (or something?).
I keep meaning to sell mine as they are sat gathering dust in the garage, drop me an email if you are interested. They are the 46cm OS ones.Posted 6 years agoWoodySubscriber
46cm Woodchippers here and they are brilliant as the position feels very natural to me. I’ll echo the sentiments above re control in the drops and comfort offroad but that is coming from mtb only experience – might be different if you are used to road bikes! Also like my Bell Laps but didn’t get on with Midges due to the lack of bar length in the drops.Posted 6 years ago
